saving leftover fresh herbs

In technique on September 2, 2011 at 1:15 am

if you end up with too much of a fresh herb (in this case, basil) that you’re not going to be able to use up before it goes bad, don’t throw it away!

instead, put it in a blender or food processor with enough oil to make a paste.

then spoon it into an ice cube tray

and freeze.

when it’s hard, you can pop the cubes out and store them in a plastic baggie in the freezer.

use it whenever you need some of fresh herb in a sauce or soup or whatever, all year long.
